The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

MASSIVE BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT


Unless black leadership quickly calls for an end to war spending and an end to corporate bailouts there will be little chance for any real change for the growing numbers of unemployed in their communities.

Still there is far too little critique of Obama's administration in the black community. Cornell West campaigned for Obama but is now beginning to speak out. More of this is needed by black activist leadership.

As the great Abolitionist movement leader Frederick Douglass said, "Power concedes nothing without a demand." Black leadership in America must make strong sustained demands on the president and Congress.

White activists must echo these demands as well since we must create a more connected broad movement to save the nation from control by the oligarchy. The road to feudalism is right in front of us and only a determined and powerful multi-issue movement can save us.
